Careful attention is paid to the presentation of the basic theory. Enhanced sections throughout text provide much firmer foundation than the first edition. Literature citations are given throughout for reference to additional material.

Choice A: Run, go do something else, enjoy college
Choice B: Buy this, it's the transport phenomena bible of chemical engineering.
Seriously, this is a great book for fluid flow (momentum transfer), mass transfer, heat transfer. Bad book for life transfer
When "BSL 1960" was first published, the authors expressed their belief that transport phenomena should be recognized as one of the engineering sciences. Now 60 years later, this belief has been justified. This is the reason that the appearance in 1960 of BSL is significant for the chemical engineering profession. Civil Engineering have "mechanics", Mechanical Engineering have "thermodynamics", and Electrical Engineering have "electromagnetics". Transport phenomena, with or without chemical reactions, is what distinguishes Chemical Engineering from the other engineering professions.
I remember once working on a product development for Andrew Jergens. My goal was to estimate the production capacity of a stepwise batch process. Others would ultimately use my numbers to estimate the price of the product. I had to get it right! One step involved melting this wax, a synthetic whale wax, over an electric heater. I knew the BTU output but there were several physical constraints. After a few sleepless nights and pawing through the University of Cincinnati library I was stumped. Then, I started looking through BSL.Oui la! There is a problem on de-frosting turkeys ¯ a real life practical application of heat transfer; supposedly, this is how Birdseye came up with the table you see on the outside of turkey wrappings on Thanksgiving.
It did not take me long to see the application. I spent a morning doing lab experiments for my physical properties and the afternoon fitting the measurements to their procedure. The method worked.
The second edition has much better graphics and a good index. The index and table of contents in the first edition made the book unwieldy.
I recently became interested in calculating the heat-up time in a hydrolysis bed. One of the crucial problems was calculating h', the volumetric heat transfer coefficient (BTU/hr-cubic feet-F: h X l). There is an excellent method developed by Shumann in another great book: Kern's "Process Heat Transfer." BSL presents a method for estimating h that can be transformed into h' by:
h' = h X Ac/V, where Ac=cross area; V=volume of bed. With the old version, finding this section of the book was very time consuming. The second edition made it easy.
There is one downside of the 2nd edition. To make it easier to read, the publisher increased its length and width. Unfortunately, as experience has born out, this tends to make a book more prone to shearing along its binding. I intent to wrap this book in heavy plastic to add some reinforcement. I suggest you do likewise.
I will keep you posted as I continue to use this book. I may give my old red-back to some younger engineer ---to knaw on the edges before they ask me for the answer.
